Angels Option David Carpenter To Triple A Salt Lake

Following their 6-5 win over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night in Anaheim, the Los Angeles Angels optioned relief pitcher David Carpenter to Triple A Salt Lake per Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.

The Angels' bullpen has struggled mightily with a 6.41 ERA in 27 games since the All-Star break, including taking five losses in their recently completed 10-game road trip. Carpenter, 25, is 1-2 with a 4.76 ERA in 28 games this season, but he allowed six runs and seven hits in just 1 2/3 innings in his three August appearances.

The corresponding roster move will become official on Saturday, but LAAngelsInsider.com reported that right-hander Steven Geltz will be recalled from Triple A. Geltz put up a 3.76 ERA with 23 strikeouts and nine walks in 26 2/3 innings in Salt Lake, and earlier this season he had a 0.36 ERA with 37 strikeouts and six walks with Double A Arkansas before moving up one level.
